BREAKING: Point Guard goes crimson
"Just committed to the zzu!! #WSU..." read the tweet from Iroegbu on Monday afternoon.
Scout.com's Evan Daniels reached Oak Hill coach Steve Smith, who confirmed the pledge.
"He visited Virginia Tech last weekend and then Washington State this weekend," Smith said. "He came in this morning and said he wanted to go to Washington State.
"We talked to coach (Ken) Bone about an hour ago and he committed to them," Smith added.
Smith added that Iroegbu is freakishly athletic and does some of his best work in transition.
Iroegbu, rated three stars, told Scout.com earlier this summer he held offers from Washington State, USC, Oklahoma State, Colorado, Virginia Tech and College of Charleston. California, UNLV, Stanford and UCLA were also showing varying shades of interest.
The Cougs hosted several point guard prospects in the month of September. On top of Iroegbu, WSU brought in Gulf Coast State College PG Chad Frazier (committed to Oklahoma State shortly after) and PG Graham Woodward from Edina, Minnesota (suburb of Minneapolis).
Iroegbu is the younger brother of former WSU walk on Chuks Iroegbu, who was at WSU for two seasons before transferring from the program at the end of the 2011-12 campaign.
CF.C has been trying to reach Iroegbu for comment, and we'll let you know as soon as we hear back from him.
Here's a recent youtube video with some of Iroegbu's highlights.
